A Wood Full of Bears

Do you ever feel that you are sinking?  You are bombarded with e-mails, phone calls, and meetings, all of which are calling for your attention NOW!

Then to top it off your boss tells you that your problem is that you can’t see the wood for the trees?

Well, you are not alone.  The human brain can only hold about 7 things in its working memory at any one time, (and this doesn’t get any better as you get older).  The video below proves the point dramatically.

So, next time you are feeling overwhelmed, get a pencil and paper and write down what is on your mind, then with your mind free you will be able to stand back and look at the whole situation.  That way you won’t get caught out by the bears.
